What is Sin?

Sin is doing wrong things, or failure to do right things according to God’s righteous standard (James 4:17). Sin is also doing right things with the wrong motives, or having wrongful thoughts (Matthew 5:27-28). Sin is sometimes purposeful but can happen through an error in judgment. In Romans 7:15-25 the Apostle Paul describes his (and our) struggle with sin and who helps us get victory over it. Sin usually causes us and/or others harm, and it always displeases God. Jesus gives us the victory over sin, and if we confess our sins with genuine remorse and a change of mind, the Lord will forgive us (1John 1:9).

What is a Type?

A type is a figure, whether a person or thing, that represents something or someone else in striking similarity. David was a type of Christ: 2Samuel 8:15; Psalm 89:19-20; Isaiah 9:7; Jeremiah 23:5; Ezekiel 37:24-25
